    2010 enduro rear brake rub when cornering

    Hi Guys

    Does anyone else have this problem and what is the simple fix.

    I have bled my brakes and realigned my caliper so when going in a straight line, everything is sweet. Start cornering or snaking down the track and brake will rub on the rotor when turning left or right.

    Thanks

    Loosen up the brakes a little bit or check for rear wheel flex. Those are the only things I can think of.

    I had the same issue with my Pitch, upgraded to a 10mm hadley axle and bolt on drop outs. No more squeel. A 9mm QR is definitely not the way to go on a bike meant to see action.

    I couldn't find a pic on of the Hadley version since their website sucks so much, here is a pic of the DT Swiss version. My conversion cost about $55 USD and was definitely worth every dollar.

    nothing witty here...

    I've been waiting for about 9 months to do this conversion, but Chris King has been out of the 10x135mm axles for almost a year! Websites are quoting 1/28/11 for availability...can't wait to ditch the POS 9mm QR.

    Thanks for the advice guys

    So I assume then that the brake rub is just from frame flex because the 9mm skewer cannot exert enough force to keep the wheel perfectly stable plus the pads are always pretty close to the rotors anyway

    Had the same last week. Somehow my baringcups got loose. Don't know how that happened, but a little tune job and it was fine. I'm very interested in that 10mm set up. Might check that out soon.

    I had similar problem...One of the FSR linkage bolts was loose, the one closest to the derailleur.
